Sulu Archipelago

The Sulu Archipelago is a chain of islands in the Pacific Ocean, in the southwestern Philippines. The archipelago forms southern limit of the Sulu Sea; the Sulu Archipelago islands are within the Mindanao island group, consisting of the provinces of Basilan and Tawi-Tawi. The archipelago is not, as is supposed, the remains of a land bridge between Borneo and the Philippines. Rather, it is the exposed edge of small submarine ridges produced by tectonic tilting of the sea bottom. Basilan, Jolo and other islands in the group are extinct volcanic cones rising from the southernmost ridge. Tawi-Tawi, the southernmost island of the group, has a serpentine basement-complex core with a limestone covering; this island chain is an important migration route for birds. The largest municipalities in the area are on Jolo; the larger island of Palawan to its north, the coastal regions of the westward-extending Zamboanga Peninsula of Mindanao, the north-eastern part of the island of Borneo were parts of the thalassocratic Sultanate of Sulu.

The archipelago is the home of the indigenous Tausug people. The Tausug language is spoken in the Sulu Archipelago as both first and second languages throughout these islands; the Yakan language is spoken in Basilan Island. Numerous dialects of Sinama are spoken throughout the archipelago, from the Tawi-Tawi Island group, to the Mapun island group, to the coast of Mindanao and beyond; the archipelago is geographically subdivided into several groups, most those around the main islands Basilan and Tawi-Tawi. There are, other groups containing small islands. After that, it became part of the Bruneian Empire before gaining its own independence on 1578; the region became part of the independent Sultanate of Sulu, founded in 1405. The arrival of Western powers became a conflict when the Spanish start to impose the rule of Spanish East Indies over the Sulu Archipelago. Spanish military expeditions against the sultanate were launched over the centuries of the colonial Philippines period; the Moro Rebellion independence movement continued the Islamic Moro conflict, against the United States occupation in areas of the Moro people in the archipelago and southwestern Philippines.

The Sulu Archipelago was part of the Islamic Sultanate of Sulu, founded in 1405 by Shari’ful Hashem Syed Abu Bak’r. The sultanate included portions of Borneo, Mindanao and other islands in the region. From the first Spanish encounters with Jolo island, the Spanish–Moro conflict met firm and organised resistance from the Sultanate of Sulu. Miguel López de Legazpi had established a colony in Cebu in May 1565, however the initial focus of the Spanish conquest to establish the Spanish East Indies was northwards. In June 1578 Francisco de Sande, Governor-General of the Spanish East Indies, dispatched captain Esteban Rodríguez de Figueroa and the Jesuit priest Juan del Campo and the coadjutor Gaspar Gómez to Jolo, resulting in a negotiated compromise where the Sulu sultan paid a regular tribute in pearls; the following year, Figueroa was awarded the sole right to colonise Mindanao. In 1587, during a campaign against Borneo launched by Sande, Figueroa burned down Jolo; the Spaniards left Jolo after a few days.

The Joloanos resolved to resist Spanish intrusions. In response to attacks, Joloanos raided Spanish reducciones. In 1593, the first permanent Roman Catholic mission was established on the Zamboanga Peninsula, three years the Spanish Army launched another attack on Jolo, repelled by the army of Rajah Bongsu. In November 1593, the Spanish Empire sent Juan Ronquillo to Tampakan to thwart the slave raiders; the following year, the Spanish Army troops relocated to Mindanao. In 1598, another expedition was repelled by the Joloanos. In late 1600, Captain Juan Gallinato with a group of about 200 Spanish soldiers attacked Jolo but were unsuccessful. By 1601, after three months of heavy fighting, the Spanish troops retreated. In 1628, a larger raiding force of about 200 Spanish army officers and 1,600 soldiers was organised to attack Jolo to defeat the Moslem slave raiders and traders, but the Spanish again failed to take Jolo. Again on 17 March 1630, a large Spanish force of 2,500 soldiers attacked Jolo but to no avail.

When its commander Lorenzo de Olazo was wounded, the Spaniards retreated. On 4 January 1638, de Corcuera led a naval and military expedition of about 80 ships and 2,000 troops to attack Jolo, but Sultan Wasit put up stiff resistance. However, Sultan Wasit's kuta army suffered a serious epidemic of tropical disease and he and his chieftains sought refuge in the Dungun area of Tawi-Tawi; the Spanish Army occupied Jolo, a small garrison was left there to control the area. The garrison was withered away by frequent raids launched by Sultan Wasit, by 1645, this garrison had been wasted away; this was the first time that Jolo had been occupied by the Spaniards for an appreciable length of time. From 1663 to 1718, an interregnum of peace occurred because the Spanish troops were ordered to abandon the Zamboanga Peninsula, forts south of that—and regroup in Manila to prepare for the impending attack of Koxinga—which never happened. Hostilities resumed in the 18th century, triggered by the 1718 decision by governor Gen
